Just because someone knows a martial art doesn't mean they know how to fight.
true but you would hope somewhere down the road, especially if you've reached shihan status, that you'd be better equipped. You may never be able to perform a "perfect" technique in a real fight, but through the process of training surely you should be given some tools to help you know how to fight.
